"The only word that consistently went through my mind as I was reading was 'remarkable!' The book is amazing -- thoughtfully weaving research findings, common sense advice, principles of psychotherapy and personal stories into a compelling work that has immense promise to alleviate the weight and pain of daughters being estranged from their fathers. Presuming to speak on behalf of the fathers to whom you will restore the great gift of their daughters, thank you!" --Dr. Sanford Braver, Arizona State University, author of Divorced Dads: Shattering the Myths, and advisor to President Bill Clinton's Father Initiative
"Nielsen's book breaks new ground by including men as significant parents. Helpful for more than their financial contribution to their children, fathers must not only be permitted but encouraged toward a role beyond the stranger who signs the checks. So I say, 'read this book!'" --Karen DeCrow, attorney, former president of the National Organization of Women
"To say we love without knowing what we are loving is a wasted life. To discover our dad's or our daughter's love is to both discover them and ourselves. Nielsen's book guides us to both by data that makes us question what we know; by insights that help us discover what we don't know; and questionnaires that help us stumble into ourselves. Every dad and daughter must read it." --Warren Farrell, author of Father & Child Reunion and Why Men Are the Way They Are
"Dr. Nielsen brilliantly brings home the facts about what really happens in families of divorce and offers practical solutions. It masterfully separates fact from fiction and exposes the secret and hidden realities for many moms, dads, and daughters involved in divorce. Understanding, compassion, and healing are inevitable for readers. Research and real life stories are combined with interesting and thought-provoking quizzes and self tests. Dr. Nielsen masterfully uses this combination to unlock the secret and well-hidden realities of what really happens in divorce. Her practical insights and recommendations will bring understanding and healing for all who dare to look." --Maureen Geddes and Bob McGuire, attorneys, co-presidents of Canadian Equal Parenting Council
"A tour de force in the under-explored area of father-daughter relationships, Dr. Nielsen's 25 years of research provide a masterful handbook written in a disarmingly casual conversational style. With 200 heavy-duty citations to also entice the academic community, a lovely blend of anecdotal stories, crisp statistical summaries, and handy self-test quizzes, the author clearly understands communication. The chapter on divorced father-daughter relationships is superb and worth the price of the book alone. This one is a keeper--both as a dad's how-to manual on daughters, and a daughter's what-makes-Dad-tick reference guide." --Canadian Equal Parenting Council
"This is a hugely important book about a hugely important topic: healing the relationship between fathers and daughters. Professor Nielsen writes with more wisdom, experience, and care about this than anyone else out there. If you are a father or a daughter, or someone who cares about a daughter and father, get this book!" --Joshua Coleman, Ph.D., senior fellow, Council on Contemporary Families and author of When Parents Hurt: Compassionate Strategies When You and Your Grown Children Don't Get Along
"Dr. Linda Nielsen is at the vanguard of educators and authors who know that the relationship between daughters and fathers is fundamental and critical to the development of whole, healthy women. Her book offers insights and practical advice for daughters and fathers. Nielsen's work deserves our unending gratitude." --Jonetta Rose Barras, columnist, political analyst, and author of Whatever Happened to Daddy's Little Girl: The Impact of Fatherlessness on Black Women
"Girls with loving, involved fathers flourish and become strong, secure women. Based on years of experience and research, Dr. Linda Nielsen tells fathers and daughters, in any family situation, how to nurture this core relationship." --Elizabeth Marquadt, Institute of American Values, author of Between Two Worlds: The Inner Lives of Children of Divorce
"Linda Nielsen's Between Fathers and Daughters is an insightful, powerful work which gets beyond the stereotypes to provide a real-world examination of a tremendously underrated relationship--the loving, special bonds fathers share with their daughters." --Glenn Sacks, men's columnist and radio host of His Side
"Nielsen identifies the fears, hurts, and anger that separate fathers and daughters and--more important--she gives powerful tools to move beyond the past. Drawing on her extensive knowledge and expertise, Nielsen shows you how to reconnect, repair, and recapture a loving relationship. Stop feel sorry for yourself, stop feeling angry, get moving before it is too late with Nielsen's expert advice." --Richard A. Warshak, Ph.D., author of Divorce Poison: Protecting the Parent-Child Bond from a Vindictive Ex
